Short Answer

An arrow has just been shot from a bow and is now traveling

horizontally. Air resistance is not negligible. Identify the forces on

the arrow.

two forces are there Drag and weight

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1.Given information

Here given that when arrow shot from the bow and it is traveling horizontally. during that Air resistance is not negligible then Identify the how many forces are acting on the arrow.

Step 2

here given that the air resistance is not negligible so all the forces on the arrow are all non contact forces.

Once the arrow is shot with constant velocity, the force acting on it is the downward force of gravity and second one is drag force because here air resistance not negligible. then arrow will continue to fly horizontally at the constant velocity until it hits the ground.
